Joe Quenqua Joins PR Powerhouse 42West As Managing Director

The former Disney executive will lead a new bi-coastal department expanding the company's offerings in filmed and digital content and live events

NEW YORK and LOS ANGELES, July 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Long-time Disney communications executive and PR agency veteran Joe Quenqua has joined 42West as a Managing Director based in its Los Angeles office. Overseeing teams on both coasts, Joe will expand the company's offerings deeper into the filmed and digital content space as well as live events. The announcement was made today by 42West co-CEOs  Leslee Dart, Amanda Lundberg, and Allan Mayer.

Quenqua assumes his new role effective immediately, working alongside Managing Directors Susan Ciccone, Linda Guerrero, Tom Piechura, Sarah Rothman, Amanda Silverman, and Meredith O'Sullivan Wasson

"Joe's many years of experience in the film world, not to mention his recent success in the digital, streaming, and live events spaces, make him a formidable addition to our staff," Dart, Lundberg, and Mayer said in a joint statement. "We are thrilled to welcome him to the 42West family."

"I have had the honor of enjoying both personal and professional relationships with Leslee and Amanda for more than two decades," said Quenqua. "I am extremely grateful to both of them, along with Allan, for giving me the opportunity to join and help build this already world-class team."

Joe most recently served as Executive Vice President at DKC (Dan Klores Communications), heading both the firm's national entertainment practice and its Los Angeles operations. In that role, Joe built and led a bi-coastal team that executed both corporate and consumer campaigns for such major clients as Amazon Studios, Netflix, HBO, The Walt Disney Company, Viacom, NBC/Universal, Sony Pictures Entertainment, Westfield Corporation, QVC, Conde Nast Entertainment, Discovery Communications, Feld Entertainment, FathomEvents, Broad Green, and Relativity Media. Joe was also integral to the creation of DKC/O&M, the PR industry's first national Broadway and live events division.

Prior to DKC, Joe spent eleven years at Walt Disney Studios, where he led the national media strategies across all film titles and brands, including Pixar, Marvel, DreamWorks, and all Disney live action and animation. He also served concurrently as the head of Global Communications and Worldwide Publicity for Disney Theatrical Group.

Prior to Disney, Joe served as Vice President of Film in the New York office of mPRm Public Relations, leading both theatrical release and award campaigns for various studios and independent distributors.

Earlier in his career, Joe spent several years at PMK Public Relations, working for Leslee Dart on a variety of film projects while also managing his own personal roster of actors, writers, directors, and producers.

About 42 West

42West grew out of The Dart Group, which was launched by Leslee Dart in 2004. Amanda Lundberg teamed up with Dart a few months later. In 2006, after Allan Mayer joined the partnership, the company was rechristened 42West.  Since then, the firm's PR professionals have developed and executed marketing and publicity strategies for hundreds of movies, television shows, and digital productions as well as for countless individual actors, filmmakers, recording artists, and authors. In addition 42West has also provided strategic communications counsel to a wide variety of high-profile individuals and corporate clients — ranging from movie and pop stars to major studios and media conglomerates. This past December, the New York Observer listed 42West as one of the six most powerful PR firms of any kind in the United States. In March 2017, 42West became part of Dolphin Entertainment.
